India, a poor and insanitary country with fear of terrorism



Terrorism

The 2008 Mumbai attacks were more than ten coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai,
India's largest city, by Muslim terrorists from Pakistan. The attacks, which drew widespread condemnation
across the world, began on 26 November 2008 and lasted until 29 November, killing 173 people and
wounding 308 or more.
.
Three explosions went off in the Indian capital of New Delhi on 29 October 2005, which killed more than
60 people and injured at least 200 others. The high number of casualties made the bombings the deadliest
attack in India of 2005. It was followed by 5 bomb blasts on 13 September 2008.

Terrorism in India is primarily attributable to Islamic, Sikh, Christian and Naxalite radical movements.
The regions with long term terrorist activities today are Jammu and Kashmir, Mumbai, Central India and
Seven Sister States (independence and autonomy movements). In the past, the Punjab insurgency led
to militant activities in the Indian state of Punjab as well as the national capital Delhi.
India stepped up its airport security after the 1999 Kandahar hijacking. The Central Industrial Security
Force, a paramilitary organization is in command of airport security under the regulatory frame work of
the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security. CISF formed an Airport Security Group to protect Indian airports.
It was subsequently made an armed force of the Union of India by another act of Parliament passed in
June,1983. Its current strength is 105,000. The strength will be raised to 145,000 by two to three years.
It is directly under the Federal Ministry of Home Affairs and its headquarters are at New Delhi.

インド:プネー市における爆弾テロ事件の発生に伴う注意喚起

2010年2月13日、インド西部マハーラーシュトラ州プネー市内(ムンバイの南東約100キロメートル)の外国人が
多く利用するカフェーにおいて、爆弾が爆発し、イタリア人1人及びイラン人1人を含む9人が死亡、外国人12人を
含む60人が負傷した。本件テロ事件の背景等詳細については明らかではないが、2008年11月に発生したムンバイ
における連続テロ事件(日本人1人を含む165人が死亡、日本人1人を含む304人負傷)以降に発生した大規模の
爆弾テロ事件である。テロの標的となり得る公共機関、空港、駅、市場等多数の人が集まる場所では十分な注意が
必要である。

今回のインド旅行で改めて、世界には今なお内戦やテロに脅え備えている地域が少なくないことを思い知らされた。
銃を肩に背負って重点地域を警戒する光景はパリなどでも見られたが、これほど多くの兵士が記念碑、寺院、ホテル、
空港などに配備され目を光らせている場面には出会ったことは無かった。特にホテルや寺院の入口に土嚢を積んで
警戒する様は戦時下の状況に等しい。一見平和に見える街角も、いつ弾丸の飛び交う戦場に変わるかも知れないのだ。
平和な日本では到底想像しがたい状況がそこにある。




Diarrhea

Many people left India after suffered from a severe diarrhea. All causes of this abhor symptom is
not clear. However, most cases are from infection from a dirty water, ice, raw vegetables and very poor
sanitation in the Indian society. The causative bacteria are as follows: MSSA, salmonella ,vibrio cholerae,
bacillus cereus, plesiomonas shigelloides, O157, clostridium perfringens, protozoa and others. Treatment
for dehydration and supplement of the necessary minerals and nutrition is desired at an earliest time.


The Mother and Child Health and Education Trust recommend an oral rehydration therapy
and continued feeding. Safe water, adequate sanitation and proper hygiene are too often
forgotten foundations of good health. Handwashing with soap alone could potentially reduce
the number of diarrhea. In children, zinc tablets and Vitamin A supplement is known to
reduce diarrhea.

インドでは深刻な下痢に注意

インドで最も起こりやすいのが下痢である。薬を飲んで数日で治るものもあれば、長期間持続する悪性の細菌性下痢
がある。アメーバ赤痢菌、チフス菌、サルモネラ菌、病原性大腸菌、腸炎ビブリオ菌、ブドウ球菌などがその起因菌
と知られている。筆者は一流ホテル以外では一切食事をとらず、飲料水もホテルで供給されたペットボトル以外を
飲用しなかったが、どこにでもいるブドウ球菌だけでは説明できない原因不明の理由で、3ヶ月近くにわたる長期の
下痢に悩まされた。しかし、海外旅行者にも対応する国立国際医療センター病院で、意外な薬剤を服用して完治したが、
普段、清潔な生活を送っていると、激しい下痢に襲われて体調を崩す可能性が高い。日本で暮らしていると当たり前
のように思っていることが、インドから帰ってみて「日本て本当に清潔な国なのだ」と改めて都市設備のすばらしさ
を再認識する。
